Now I want you to think back, it’s 1986, (I know some of you were just born, but bear with me). Bobby Brown has just left one of the most successful male R/B groups of it’s time, and he drops his first single from his first solo project: KING OF THE STAGE. The song is called GIRLFRIEND, and for all of us who loved the r/b crooner (gap teeth and all) he couldn’t have picked a better title for his first song. I remember I just got a brand new all red boom box for Christmas, and laying beside it was the brand new Bobby Brown album. I ripped the plastic from that cassette tape, and played that song at least 1K times. So on this Flashback Friday, take a trip back with me, you know when R/B was real! Enjoy (I found the original video..a quality not great but good enough for you to smile at the memories the song holds). Read the rest of this entry »

And with I Quit You, I believe it to be a demo for a female singer, because he singing from that perspective. Check them out. Read the rest of this entry »
The king of R/B recorded a youtube message for all of his fans, after having throat surgery. He developed an abscess on his tonsils and had to have emergency surgery. The 44yr. old singer made sure to ask people not to believe all the negative rumors (media reporting that he is broke amongst other things) they have been hearing, and he when he has recovered he will be in the studio recording his new album. Well I for one am saying please get well soon Mr. Kelly, because R/B could use a good dose of you right now. Check out the video below, and the Remix of Britney Spears Till The World Ends.
Ace Hood got the Nappy Boy on this new track, from his upcoming album: BLOOD,SWEAT,&TEARS. KING OF THE STREETS has Ace going hard…and T-Pain has not put down the autotune..at least not for this joint. Check it out.
